Enjoy the Curves You Deserve

The breast implant procedure is relatively simple, but it’s one that can sometimes lead to a variety of issues once your surgery is complete. In some cases, patients feel as though their initial results just aren’t up to par. In other cases, patients can go months or even years, enjoying their results before a problem arises.

Whatever the case may be, Dr. Hovsepian is here to address any issues that may have presented themselves, restoring your curves in the process. If you’re interested in meeting with Dr. Hovsepian and learning more about how he can correct complications from a prior breast augmentation, reach out and set up your consultation at his Beverly Hills surgical center today.

Am I the Ideal Candidate for Breast Revision?

You’re more than likely to be a great candidate for breast revision with Dr. Raffi Hovsepian if you’re dealing with common reasons for seeking out this procedure, such as:

  • Implant replacement
  • Capsular contracture
  • Malfunctioning implants
  • Leakage or breakage
  • Rippling
  • Positional issues

You’re also a great candidate if you’ve simply noticed that your body has changed over time and you desire changes in the shape, size, or appearance of your breasts.

Capsular Contracture and Common Issues

In some cases, patients experience a condition known as capsular contracture. This involves a hardening of the tissue that surrounds the breast implant, and it can become quite painful if left unaddressed. While there are other reasons you might be looking for breast revision, capsular contracture is one of the more common.

Dr. Hovsepian is skilled in replacing or revising breast implants that have become asymmetrically positioned or have shifted in position over time. He can also replace traditional saline implants or older silicone implants with newer, more natural-feeling variants.

Dr. Hovsepian’s Techniques

Extensive training has enabled Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., to offer his patients something known as the "Bioengineered Breast" approach. This incorporates individually selected implants and regenerative materials, in addition to fat grafting and tissue-specific pocket maneuvers, allowing him to create more precise results.

He is also able to create new surgical spaces, like the "neopectoral pocket," into which form-stable "Tear Drop" or "Gummy Bear" implants can be placed. This gives you the ability to exercise an increased amount of control over the look, feel, and overall shape of your new implants.

A regenerative matrix material can also be added as a tissue "thickener," implant stabilizer, or capsule deterrent, to help ensure a successful revision procedure. Dr. Hovsepian can also work to further refine your results with fat injections. You’ll get to thoroughly discuss all of your options during your preoperative consultations.

Mastopexy (Breast Lift) and Revision

Some patients feel that their previous surgery may have removed too much or too little tissue. Others can feel unhappy with how weight and tissue changes have stretched their skin over time.

Problems with a previous breast lift procedure can even compromise the position of the breast implant, or the implant can cause the breasts to sag severely, requiring surgical correction.

Dr. Raffi Hovsepian has experience with a wide range of lift-oriented revision procedures and is sensitive to the concerns of all his patients. No matter how large or small the problem may be, he’ll work with you to ensure that you achieve a more flattering breast volume, shape, and position.

The Breast Revision Surgery

Before your procedure, Dr. Hovsepian and his highly trained aesthetic team will ensure that you understand your procedure and recovery process thoroughly. He’ll answer all your questions, as privacy, safety, and comfort, are the hallmarks of Dr. Hovsepian’s patient experience. You’ll need to begin fasting eight hours prior to your procedure, which means you won’t be able to eat or drink anything during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water.

If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.

Breast revision surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes a few hours to complete. You should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas.

In many cases, Dr. Hovsepian is able to utilize the incisions that were made as part of your original procedure, so as to avoid any additional scarring.

Some of our patients prefer an overnight stay, while our out-of-town guests will be accommodated in a nearby hotel or aftercare facility, where a "private duty" nurse will be available for you, if required.
